Over the last 5 years, the Creative Writing Club has held a poetry contest with all sorts of new ideas for writing. This contest allows students to be creative in their special way.
“The Creative Writing contest intends to give students an opportunity to write creatively because a lot of our writing in English class is academic writing and this also gets them feedback from judges who view the submissions as readers instead of teachers,” English teacher Deborah McNemee said. For this year’s theme, they chose change for the short stories and poetry pieces. One specific requirements for the contest included the setting which had to be in fall. Sophomore Ryan Armstrong won the poem portion of the contest with his poem “the eyes, the eyes”. The winner of the short story contest was senior Sarah Blout. the eyes, the eyes as to creep the eyes, the eyes wont let me sleep the eyes, the eyes when I walk & talk the eyes, the eyes always stalk the eyes, the eyes ruined my life the eyes, the eyes are out of sight the eyes, the eyes its torture to me the eyes, the eyes but its the writers fault you see the eyes, the eyes I am bound to the page the eyes, the eyes this is a stage the eyes, the eyes please look away the eyes, the eyes I don’t want to stay the eyes, the eyes Its you you see you are the eye
